Brown University’s Commencement is one of the most colorful and enjoyable academic pageants in the country. Alumni are welcome to march in the Commencement procession (academic regalia required) and attend the ceremony. The Medical School’s Commencement Procession will begin to form in front of Faunce House on Waterman Street (extending back to Thayer Street) on Sunday, May 24, promptly at 10:30 a.m., and will step off at approximately 10:45 a.m.
It is customary for medical alumni to wear academic regalia—a black gown, tam, and hood representative of their degree. There is also an option to wear a traditional cutaway with high silk hat and plain white shirt. Information on regalia rentals will be available in February 2015.
